Drawn Out at Temporary Services
Good! High concept drawn out from the ordinary, Best of show was Shy-Girl and the guy with the funny letters (Rich Mackin).
OIL at Standard
Very, very boring. Mchelle Grabner is miscast in a show that seems to be about painting and nothing else. (The ghost of Ten in One lives on - decorative conceptualism.)
Wllliam Cordova at NFA Space
It brings to mind Robert Longo. Drug wars instead of corporate wars. Is there a big difference between these two? I don't think so. Now, Cordova gives us a parody a la Pulp Fiction set in the sun - Hip and cool and well choreographed.
Pierre Huyghe at the Ren
Has there ever been anything so cool and substantial? Dog Day Afternoon revisited. A take on perception, history, journalism and entertainment. There is also some minimalism thrown in the set design. Perfect, and at the MCA - Simply amazing! Pop-culture for the brain.
Henrik Plenge Jakobsen at CPR
The Project Room is leaving with a bang! Wall paintings; eccentric and colorful; aggressive and refined. "Everything is wrong" but it will be OK - good luck in CA.
The new Alternatives, or a reminder of how good things are here:
Law Office, FGA, Dogmatic, Temporay Services, Standard, Sixspace, Bodybuilder and Sportsman, Suitable, and NFA Space.
The good ones at SAIC's grad show:
Steve Lacy, Marie Bergman Crane, Andy Hall, Gina Dzickies, Merchant Adams, Mike Kiersuk, and Adam Leech. [and Frank D. Robinson's tough, strange "Ghetto" heads, Mara Pelecis' comfy, poetic, mysterious cocoons, Christopher Sorg's multi-tiered garden with lots of little plants struggling to stay alive.]
And the Oscar goes to:
The MCA for being so active lately. Thanks for the Thomas Demand, the Helen Mira, the big styrofoam piece on the wall, the Orozco and the Manilow drawing collection.
-- Pedro Velez, Michael Bulka, and Cindy Loehr
